Attention Riders

    WCCE Service Reduction to Downtown Stops Beginning May 5

    SUSPENSION OF DOWNTOWN COMMUTER BUS SERVICE DURING COVID-19

     

    The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we work. As a result, ridership on the Washington County Commuter Express to downtown Milwaukee has dropped below the level needed to sustain service on those runs.  Washington County will be suspending commuter bus service to downtown Milwaukee on Tuesday, May 5th and anticipates the suspension will remain in effect for the remainder of the Safer at Home mandate. Service to the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center and VA Hospital will continue as scheduled.

     

    The bus runs affected are:

    • AM Runs 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, & 11
    • PM Runs 13 (downtown only), 16, 18, 20, 21, 22, 24 & 25

    The following stops will not be serviced by the WCCE during the reduction of service:

    ·         Wisconsin & 35th/Marquette High

    ·         Wisconsin & 16th/Marquette Univ

    ·         Wisconsin & 12th Street

    ·         Wisconsin & James Lovell Drive

    ·         Wisconsin & 5th Street

    ·         Wisconsin & 4th Street

    ·         Wisconsin & Plankinton

    ·         Wisconsin & Water Street

    ·         Wisconsin & Broadway

    ·         Wisconsin & Jefferson/Jackson

    ·         Wisconsin & Cass

    ·         Wisconsin & Water

    ·         Prospect & Mason/Northwestern Mutual

    ·         Kilbourn & Milwaukee

    ·         Rivercenter & Cherry - Schlitz

     

    This is a temporary service interruption. Service to downtown Milwaukee is anticipated to resume when the Safer at Home orders are lifted, currently scheduled for May 26, 2020. Information changes rapidly, and we appreciate your understanding. Service suspension may continue if the orders are extended. All updates will be sent to the WCCE email blast, posted at www.ridewcce.com, and posted on Washington County’s Facebook page.

     

    We recognize that some residents will still need access to downtown Milwaukee. The Washington County Shared Ride Taxi has added a transfer point to Milwaukee County Transit Services to connect with the Blue Line (service to Downtown Milwaukee). WCCE riders can also connect with the Gold Line at the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center to get downtown. MCTS bus routes are operating at a regular schedule, and will provide ADA-accessible transportation every 25 minutes. Service and fare information can be found at www.ridemcts.com.  

     

    Washington County Shared Ride Taxi service requires advanced notice to ride. Please call 262-338-2908 or 888-285-TAXI (8294) to make a reservation.
